Hi all,
I am designing a website as part of a learning process for Spring MVC, Hibernate, Persistence, MySQL and JSP. The site will fetch product details and images from MySQL database and display these in a product page.I have all the controllers, entities etc designed and some jsp pages to make sure it all works. My problem is I dont know what to use to make a nice, professional looking product catalog page or product grid. I'm thinking javascript and JSP but dont know. I'm only new to this and want to learn JSP before learning JSF or primefaces.
All advice is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
Gus

The tool you use is somewhat irrelevant. What will make a site look "nice and professional" is the HTML, JavaScript and CSS that composes it. Whether you use JSP or anything else to generate that HTML is moot.

Hi Bear,
Thanks for replying to my question. I understand the HTML, CSS and JS element but I still need JSP for the dynamic info from the database. Do I therefore use HTML and JS inside the JSP page.
Regards,
Gus

Not a dumb question: what else would you use?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
